The Snapdragon 835 chip that the company is planning to slide into this Mobile PC Platform, is equipped with the latest Qualcomm X16 LTE modem to bring more efficiency, because the LTE technology will bring Connected Standby capability to the Windows 10 PCs that means they can sync mails and receive notifications even when in "Sleep" mode.
 
Not only this, with the gigabit LTE connection support in X16 modem, users will be able to leverage the Cellular connectivity to get fast internet connections depending on the support from the network operator.
 
In the official blog, Qualcomm states,
 
"With Snapdragon, hardware makers can create Windows 10 PCs that are thin, light, fan-less, and designed to deliver long battery life. With the integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem, your Windows 10 device can support blazing fast Gigabit internet speeds for a virtually anytime, anywhere experience."
 
Though the prices and the time are unspecified today, yet some big computer manufacturers like HP, Asus, and Lenovo will be introducing laptop-style Snapdragon Mobile PC machines.
 
We hope this combo of Mobile and PC technology will be as fruitful as it sounds, and we will see some robust light-weight and compact machines in near future because of the compact size of the Snapdragon chips.
